Victoria University River Run 2012
Maribyrnong River, Maribyrnong, VIC 3032
Saturday 17th March, 2012
Last year’s twilight River Run was such at success down at the Maribrynong River that this year it is on again giving everyone the opportunity to farewell Summer by running or walking along the iconic Maribyrnong River as the sun goes down.
This years event will be longer than last years with a 5km run/walk starting at 5:30pm, followed by an 10km run/walk starting at 5:50pm. The course will start from Coulson Gardens, and will head north along the Maribrynong River through the new Afton Street Conservation Park Wetland, and return back along the other side of the river.
Come and run the Marby River!!!
Saturday 17th March is St Patrick’s Day, so instead of heading down to the Anglers Tavern by the river for a beer, why not celebrate with family and friends in the GREEN surrounds of Coulson Gardens. There is a playground in Coulson Park for the kids and plenty of barbeque and seating areas to kick back, watch the sun set and enjoy an evening picnic after the race.
There is no official charity or fun raising in place for this event, but the 2012 Victorian University River Run, encourages participants to raise money for the Royal Children’s Hospital.
